In last year’s Inflation Reduction Act, Congress increased the Internal Revenue Service’s budget by nearly $80 billion over the next decade. The US Treasury Department recently released the IRS’s plan for using those funds. Congress and other observers will scrutinize the plan to evaluate whether it maps out a comprehensive and credible plan to improve both tax enforcement and customer service, while treating all taxpayers fairly.
Join the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center for the annual Donald C. Lubick Symposium on April 17, for a discussion of the IRS’s spending plan. Treasury Deputy Secretary Wally Adeyemo will participate in a fireside chat with Urban Institute President Sarah Rosen Wartell, followed by a conversation with former IRS commissioner Charles Rossotti and an expert panel discussing their views on the IRS’s proposal.

THE DONALD C. LUBICK SYMPOSIUM SERIES
The Tax Policy Center established the Donald C. Lubick Symposium Series in 2016 to honor Lubick’s extraordinary record in promoting better tax policy founded on the principles of efficiency, equity, and simplicity. The annual symposium, held around Tax Day, engages high-level policymakers, advocates, researchers, and the media in discussions about the most pressing issues in tax policy and tax administration.
